Album Review

In 2012, right on schedule, Rihanna delivered her fourth annual November album. The singer took a different route with the lead single. She didn't go with a dramatic ballad like "Russian Roulette" or a big dance number like "Only Girl (In the World)" and "We Found Love." Instead, the nod went to a midtempo pop ballad, "Diamonds" — as in "We're like diamonds in the sky" (rather than stars in a mine), a simple and effective, light in meaning yet massive in sonics, quasi-processional. Even with that change of pace, the possibility of it signaling an overall change in direction was slight. Not only is Unapologetic just as varied as Rihanna's past albums — it's another timely refresh of contemporary pop music — but it's a little more exploratory and a whole lot deeper, too. Continuing the trend that began on Rated R, Rihanna's at her best when she's flaunting. This goes for "Pour It Up," a characteristically chilly and booming Mike Will collaboration that might as well be a sequel to "Bandz a Make Her Dance," the producer's hit with Juicy J. Wrapped in a serene sneer, Rihanna's trash talk is something else. Moments such as that one are so convincing that the few everywoman heart-on-sleeve songs — with the exception of the massive, slamming, wailing power ballad that is "What Now" — don't sound all that natural. Two of the album's most intriguing, contrasting, and not-so-everywoman tracks appear consecutively during the latter half. Both of them were written and produced by Terius "The-Dream" Nash and Carlos "Los" McKinney. "Nobody's Business," flecked with elements from Michael Jackson's "The Way You Make Me Feel," is a beaming if somewhat belligerent disco-house duet with Chris Brown. Rihanna's partner proposes to make out in a Lexus prior to proclaiming that the relationship "ain't nobody's business." The celebration is followed by "Love Without Tragedy/Mother Mary," conjoined songs with a wide theatrical scope akin to that of the-Dream's own "Nikki, Pt. 2/Abyss." Over a swelling and receding production with echoes of Kim Carnes' "Bette Davis' Eyes," Rihanna mourns ("Felt like love struck me in the night/I pray that love don't strike twice"), then confesses ("Mother Mary, I swear I wanna change"), then surrenders ("I'm prepared to die in the moment"). Perhaps no one should read anything into it. The same could be said of "No Love Allowed," which comes along a little later. Even with a captivating, drum-less reggae groove, it's hard to hear lines like "Your love hit me to the core" and "It's so foolish how you keep me wanting more" and think that she's fine and could be singing about anyone. While this is a fine, if uneven album, the only way to enjoy a significant portion of it is by taking it as pure entertainment. Good luck. [The Deluxe Edition is a CD/DVD combo and contains four bonus tracks; it is also available in a clean version.]

Customer Reviews

Ach Nö...

Ich will nicht mit denen streiten, die der Meinung sind, dass dieses Album supi dupi toll ist. Aber nachdem Diamonds derart im Kopf hängen geblieben ist ,vor allem da ihre Stimme nicht derart verzerrt wurde, das man gedacht hat, sie singt unter Starkstrom, bin ich echt enttäuscht!
Es sind wieder ,,Computer-Schnell-Hits'', wo mir für ihre eigentlich echt schöne Studiostimme einfach das Gefühl und die Leidenschaft fehlt. Es ist toll, dass sie sich entwickelt und immer neu ist, aber sie lässt sich ihre Songs schreiben, vermittelt also Null Message und bringt durch diesen Weg jedes verkackte Jahr ein neues Album raus!
Was hat das dann mit Kunst zu tun? - nicht falsch verstehen, ich höre sie gerne und auch sonst Mainstream, aber das geht mir zu weit!
Wo sind Songs wie Rehab oder Unfaithful, wo man noch wusste was sie wirklich kann?
Nicht ständig diese latent nackte (auch wenn sie gut aussieht ;))Tanzmaus, die sich von der Popindustrie verheizen lässt.

Das Werk!

Ein fantastisch facettenreiches Album, dass Rihanna's Begabung wirklich zeigt.
Musikalisch ist es ein Misch aus allen Genres, und das macht es zum No.1 Album

Rihanna mach mal ne Pause

Das sie es so nötig hat, jedes Jahr ein Album zu veröffentlichen!
Rihanna sollte sich mal eine Pause machen, ihre Musik ist so einseitig und langweilig. Sie selbst kann leider
überhaupt nichts, weder singen noch Songtexte schreiben. Ohne ihre Hit-Songschreiber und ihre Hit-
Produzenten, wäre sie schon lange im Nichts verschwunden. Aber Potential ist da, warum macht sie keine krative Pause
und versucht mal selbst Musik zu schreiben, mit Texten die wirklich von ihr kommen und ihre Persönlichkeit
unterstreichen. Dann wäre ein Gesangstraining mal angebracht, live ist sie ja nicht zu ertragen.

Rihanna established her dance-pop credentials in summer 2005 with her debut smash hit, "Pon de Replay," and continued to demonstrate hit potential in subsequent years ("S.O.S." in 2006; "Umbrella" in 2007; "Disturbia" in 2008). However, it was the singer's third album, Good Girl Gone Bad, that made her a full-fledged international pop star with a regular presence atop the charts. Born Robyn Rihanna Fenty on February 20, 1988, in Saint Michael, Barbados, she exhibited a certain star quality as a young...
